My Reaction

No more. Will any of you take and take and take and take and take! My kindness. My appeal. My spirit. My sense of self.

 Shrinking into the crowd
I draw a line.
Thick and Black.
Deep cuts
into the sand.
Twinkling down.
I stake my claim.
I make myself known
to no one
anymore.
No more.
Will I give you
what you want to take.
No more.
Will I do for you
what only you
can do for yourself.
No more.
Will any of you
take
and take
and take
and take
and take!
 
My kindness.
My appeal.
My spirit.
My sense of self.
F---k you.
I care about nothing.
I care for no one.
No more.
Anymore.
 
Therefore
I take my leave
and I lock and burn
this bridge down.
Deep and dark
into the very core
of human and earthly
existence.
 
It is done.
As I am undone.
And I have nothing left
to lose.
So go on.
Try to fight me.
Push me harder.
For I will rise
and like a phoenix
I will burn up everything that I am
to the very ground
before I give in
and let you in.
Let you win
ever.
Ever.
Ever.
Never!
Again.
